Completely different: five actresses you wouldn't recognize in their first movies. Photo
When we watch old movies and TV series, we often see actors who are now iconic at the start of their film careers. Some of them are simply impossible to recognize. The stars changed their style, underwent plastic surgery and various beauty injections, and their eyes now show noticeable confidence and experience.
Today OBOZREVATEL offers to look at some actresses in their first films and compare how much they have changed. The difference between some of the photos exceeds 60 years.
Winona Ryder made her big movie debut in 1986, starring in the movie Lucas. The young actress was only 15 years old at the time. Today she is 51. The star's filmography includes more than fifty films. In addition, Ryder was nominated for an Oscar for two years in a row for her roles in The Age of Innocence (1993) and Little Women (1994). She is also a Golden Globe Award winner.
In 1983, the movie BMX Bandits was released, introducing the audience to 16-year-old actress Nicole Kidman. Today, she is a 2003 Oscar winner for her role as Virginia Woolf in The Hours, the owner of a personalized star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and a whole list of other honors and regalia. The 56-year-old filmmaker continues to act and produce her own films. However, Kidman's potential was already evident 40 years ago.
It is almost impossible to recognize the famous British actress and model Elizabeth Gurley in the first photo. This is a still from the 1987 movie Aria. In it, the celebrity is only 22 years old, and now she is 58. Gurley is still considered one of the sexiest female celebrities. She often delights fans with swimsuit shots, showing off her athletic build and graceful slim silhouette.
Just think about it: 85-year-old Jane Fonda is the winner of two Academy Awards, five Golden Globe Awards, two BAFTA Awards, and an Emmy Award. The iconic actress began her career in the 1960 film The Big Story when she was 23 years old. The star has changed a lot over the past 60 years, with numerous facelifts and plastic surgery visible on her face. However, this does not prevent Fonda from remaining a legend of world cinema. Her biography movie Jane Fonda in Five Acts was released in 2018.
Today, 88-year-old Maggie Smith is primarily associated with the good-natured but strict gray-haired professor Minerva McGonagall from the iconic Harry Potter franchise. However, the actress has many other outstanding roles in her arsenal. This is evidenced by the huge number of celebrity awards: she is a two-time Oscar winner, seven-time BAFTA winner, three-time Golden Globe winner, four-time Emmy winner, and five-time winner of the Screen Actors Guild Award. Smith is also a real beauty: just take a look at a screenshot from the 1958 movie Nowhere to Go, in which the actress made her debut at the age of 24.
